Busta Rhymes to Headline One Love Peace Festival
UK’s number one reggae event, One Love Peace Festival returns in grand style to celebrate their 20 year anniversary — at London’s Wembley Arena on Sunday 31st July.
Rap superstar Busta Rhymes will headline the event bringing a Hip-Hop climax to the festival. Busta will be joined by Grammy-award-winning superstars Shaggy and Sean Paul and man of the moment Gyptian, as well as roots royalty Aswad, in an unprecedented music showcase this summer.
Busta Rhymes said: “I can’t wait to get back to the UK! It’s been three years since I last performed here so I’m dying to tear the roof off Wembley Arena at The One Love Peace Festival with some old school joints and brand new bangers. When I’m done, you’re gonna remember it for a long time to come. Get ready because it’s about to go down!”

It seems that more and more, we are turning to Twitter for the latest news and events around the world. Even public safety officials are using Twitter to stay on top of the latest developments. We know that the public, first responders and journalists are using Twitter to learn about trends and breaking news. As of late, there has been a spike in media and pr professionals utilizing twitter to their advantage and EOTM PR is one of them.
“One way to stay on top of breaking news related to your clients is to set up searches on Twitter for general topic areas related to your client’s work. For example, set up a search for “booking actors” and “actors” in addition to your client’s name if their work is in the entertainment field. While it may not catch all of the latest news for booking actors, you may see a few tweets relating to an upcoming casting that you can start to follow”, Carla Barnes, Senior Publicist for EOTM said in an recent interview.
Right now there is no better source for breaking news than Twitter, and EOTM PR professionals are using this to their advantage whenever possible. “You should keep your tools for monitoring Twitter open all day and check it regularly because you never know when the perfect opportunity for your client will come up”, Barnes said.
What has your Publicist tweeted for you lately?
There’s no question that Twitter is the new playground for media relations. It’s a new frontier, that when managed professionally, can serve as a powerful platform and one of the best resources for getting a message out to the masses.

A couple days ago I asked this very question on my facebook page, “Does negative publicity help or hurt your business?”
In my humble opinion, I do believe negative publicity helps a business. Lots of movie stars seems to thrive on negative publicity. Several others have intentionally orchestrated negativity publicity to get into the limelight although many won’t admit it.
But there’s one word of caution here, if your business has a lousy product that no one wants or the business uses unethical means and abuses the customer’s trust then no amount of publicity positive or negative will help.
Why does negative publicity work?
I hate to say this but as a society, people love to see people fight, love to see a super star fall apart whether it’s a 50 cent, Michael Jackson, Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears. Our society gets its thrills from seeing successful people fall apart. Donald Trump came into the public eye when he was close to a $ 10 billion bankruptcy and in the middle of a dirty divorce. When the Gap unveiled a new logo last year, the reaction was swift, intense and very, very negative. In fact, some people detested the look so much it actually inspired them: somebody set up a Twitter account (@GapLogo) that purported to speak in the unpopular design’s voice, and someone else built a site called CrapLogo.me that made it easy to convert any short text into an imitation of the brand’s new style. The Gap tried to pivot off the negative buzz by asking the online hate mob for advice, in a sort of “crowd sourcing” gimmick, but that didn’t go over well, either. In just four days, the company capitulated and announced that it would not change its logo after all.
Britney Spears stays in the limelight for all the wrong reasons and who can forget the late great Michael Jackson from court cases to financial troubles.
I am not saying they are intentionally orchestrating negative publicity, but the point I am making is negative publicity is giving them media attention and they are getting visibility for themselves. How they use this visibility is an entirely different ball game altogether.
Better that people are talking about your brand than not…just my two cents.

Carla’s take on Public Relations — Ethics
I absolutely love these types of show whereas we can empower minds with food for thought! These shows are dedicated to the elite group of professionals that take the time to hone in on they’re craft. The central purpose of my portion of the show will be to provide an overview of ethics in public relations.
Every Public Relations organization has a code of ethics which the members are expected to abide. The primary objective of this code of ethics is to form guidelines to educate members on how they should conduct themselves in their professional lives. Despite these guidelines, ethics in individual practice is deeply troubling for PR professionals and consistent violation has been a matter of debate for years. Most critics have complained that the ethics ‘have no teeth’ and one cynic as quoted by PR Sourcewatch says, “real ethical behavior is expensive, and that’s where the PR industry’s ethical dilemma
originates. All of the major public relations firms routinely engage in unethical practices and they don’t do it because they are evil people. They do it because their wealthy clients have problems, and cleaning up their image is often easier and cheaper than cleaning up their mess’.
In this section I will also discuss how having a strong sense of ethics and of how to arrive at ethical decisions can enhance the career prospects of public relations professionals. Hope you can make it! Check out my Public Relations and Blog Site for more info on me. EOTM Radio, call in with your question to 718-664-6543

If he was looking for a creative defense on his recent string of probation violations, the ice cream tattoo should definitely put him closer to his supposedly mental disorder angle. The rapper, who was recently released from a psychiatric facility after pleading “mental incompetency”, had an ice cream cone tattooed onto his face earlier this month.
Yes, you heard and seen it right. Gucci Mane is now sporting a cone with three scoops on his right cheek, complete with the word “Brrr” and several red lightning bolts!!
Mane was recently released from the psychiatric facility, it is unclear what his release means for his probation status.
Gucci’s team probably thought they could use mental instability to help get him off, especially considering he has never presented himself as a emcee with any real lyrical depth; and the majority of his rhymes being nonsensical and lacking critical thinking. Nevertheless, I don’t feel most of Gucci’s fans would have ever speculated that he was mentally incompetent, but nice try.
(EPR) — Grammy nominated singer Teena Marie, once known as Rick James’ protégée, died in her sleep on Christmas night at the age of 54.
Born Mary Christine Brockert in Santa Monica, California, the 54-year-old artist famously paired with late funk legend Rick James and was nominated four times for a Grammy Award, according to her official website.
Teena was found dead by her daughter after apparently dying in her sleep, manager Mike Gardner said.
While no cause of death has been released, the singer’s publicist Lynn Jeter said that Marie suffered a grand mal seizure — a neurological event, marked by loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions, according to the Mayo Clinic — a month ago.
“Luckily, someone was there,” Jeter said of that seizure. “The ambulance took her to the hospital, and on the way she had another seizure.”
The publicist said that she had a “great” conversation on Saturday with Marie, who told her that she was excited about heading to Atlanta to perform this week — in what would have been her first performance since the seizure.”
Marie sang under various record labels, including Motown, Epic and Cash Money Classics, since bursting on the scene as a 19-year-old, according to her website. Her most recent album, Sapphire, features collaborations with Smokey Robinson, Kurupt and Gerald Albright.
Teena Marie, RIP, you will be missed.

- First off let’s break down what’s really good audio content.
- Good audio content is anything that keeps listeners through the next minute, simply put.
What’s important in your community –
When responding to community needs, the relationship that’s built with a local radio station and it’s audience has always been solid..or at least for the most part. The argument though is that programs airing on local stations have diminished amounts of local content. Few stations, particularly mainstream are responding to community needs.
We Global…so we Local…
What internet radio was founded under –
On the internet side of this fence, there are few online radio stations that can claim to have a “program” of any sense – community or interest-oriented, EOTM is the exception. The lowest common demoninator for online streams is talk radio and music. EOTM Radio’s content is a plethora of talk/music radio shows focusing on a wide variety of cultural views and an abundance of songs that does not necessarily resemble each other, which creates a more positive listening experience that keeps listeners coming back.
Media consumption has changed to where the 35 and below crowd chooses how it spends time not by program or radio personality, but by CONTENT.
Production quality demands are no longer high. Popularity is measured by the number of persons who have listened to the content, which can be tracked online with reasonable accuracy. When the “content” that interests them is gone, listeners will not stick around to hear the rest of the “program.”
With EOTM Radio we poll internet radio listeners as well as local and national mainstream broadcasts to discover what they would like to hear and discuss which creates somewhat of a bandwagon campaign good enough to capture the word of mouth which required to take it viral.
As I stated at the top of the blog, “good audio content is anything that keeps listenership through the next minute”. Want more of it?
